Karim Adeyemi substituted injured against Bayer Leverkusen

Karim Adeyemi was injured during the first half of Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga opener against Bayer Leverkusen.

The international had already injured his left ankle in a duel with Bayer defender Piero Hincapie in the 7th minute. A diagnosis is still pending.

Adeyemi didn’t let his pain show at first. In the 10th minute he had a decisive part in the opening goal. After a shot from the new signing, the ball was just cleared on the line before Marco Reus scored to make it 1-0 (click here for the live ticker).

Adeyemi then signaled several times that it would not go on. After a short break in treatment, he bit his teeth, but had to leave the field a little later in the 23rd minute. Thorgan Hazard came on for him.

Adeyemi was signed by RB Salzburg in the summer for a reported 38 million euros. The 20-year-old signed a five-year contract.

Nico Schlotterbeck also caused a moment of shock. The central defender had to have his ribs treated and had even left the field for a short time, but returned.
